Caesars named in list of most responsible US companies
Caesars Entertainment has landed in the list of the most responsible companies in the United States.
Caesars was added to the list by Newsweek magazine because it has shown massive dedication to different causes including social problems, corporate issues and the environment. Being the only gaming company on the list, it ended up among the top 399 companies. This definitely sets a standard for other gaming companies and operators now.
This yearly “America’s Most Responsible Companies” was compiled by Newsweek with the help of Statista. The latter is a consumer data and statistics firm.
This news comes after Caesars Entertainment and Eldorado Resorts announced that they would be merging in order to create a brand new business model to draw attention and aim their focus on community efforts.
This new merged Caesars company has been committing a lot of time and effort into improving environmental protection and working on climate change. The new company has also been dedicated to integrating diversity into the workplace. 50% of the global workforce was made up of women in 2019, and more or less 50% of the leadership roles are also held by women. Aside from that, 61% of the workforce is also made up of people of colour.
Caesars ranked at number 104, which is 42 places above what it ranked last year. That being said, the company received a score of 79.7 out of 100 points. Its environmental score was 78.1, social was 83.8 and corporate governance received a score of 77.3. the company acquired the first place on the list’s Entertainment, Leisure and Dining subcategory. The top-ranking company on the list was HP who received a score of 93.2.
Tom Reeg, former Eldorado CEO turned leader of the new Caesars company, spoke of the news and stated:
“We often talk about the power our incredible Team Members have to create guest experiences that drive our lasting successes at Caesars Entertainment. That same power is amplified in their commitment not just to guests, partners, and the environment, but to each other and to the communities in which we live and work. It’s through the steadfast work, compassion, and generosity of dedicated Caesars Team Members that we can make a positive impact that continues to grow each year.”
Caesars also ranked at the top of the Human Rights Campaign’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index, which came out around the time that the list was released. Caesars reportedly received a score of 100, and 2021 is now the 14th successive year in which the company obtains a perfect score.
